Land Distribution in the Philippines
Since the early years of the Philippine government, efforts to provide fair and just distribution of land to Filipinos have continuously been developed by legislators from all over the archipelago. As the country moves forward in exerting efforts to provide fair land distribution laws, Attorneys Emmanuel & Maruijita Palabrica felt the need to provide Filipinos with a tool that can help them hasten land acquisition through better understanding of the law.
In partnership with REX Book Store, the Palabrica couple recently launched a new book for law students, professors and practitioners to give insights on the property registration decree and other related laws.
Land Titles and Deeds, Cases and Commentaries
Titled “Land Titles and Deeds (Based on Property Registration Decree and Related Laws) Cases and Commentaries”, the book cites cases from the authors’ experiences and research that could help in better understanding our land distribution laws. It also contains commentaries about the cases to provide insights and clearer information.
This book was written with the hope that it could help in the speedy acquisition and fair distribution of land to Filipinos and qualified individuals, regardless of their status in life, political or religious belief, based on existing laws.
– Excerpt from the book
Launched last July 21, 2017 at San Beda College Alabang, Atty. Emmanuel & Atty. Maruijita Palabrica oriented legal education students, professors and practicing lawyers about the importance of these laws for the benefit of our countrymen. As stated in the book: “This book was written with the hope that it could help in the speedy acquisition and fair distribution of land to Filipinos and qualified individuals, regardless of their status in life, political or religious belief, based on existing laws.” This new book aims to help current and future lawyers to provide better councel to Filipinos having problems with land distribution laws.
In this book, cases and rulings are presented to demonstrate and explain the provisions of the law. The steps in the judicial registration of title to land are listed, arranged chronologically with the pertinent provisions of the law transposed to the corresponding step to support the same. A synopsis for each major topic is provided to give an overview that will guide the readers on the basic understanding of the deeper meaning of the law provisions. Major topics are broken down into sub-topics and commentaries are provided. Pertinent cases are juxtaposed to help extract the finer meanings or nuances of the law.
Dedication to Nation Building
The authors believe that a better understanding of the Land Registration Decree will entrench one’s ownership on realties and serve as a self-restraint on individuals who lodge a baseless claim. The authors recognize that the workings of the insidious and fraudulent mind have no shore; a well-informed legal mind could bring ripples of waves that will derail its voyage.
As part of REX’s dedication to build the nation by Educating the Filipino Whole Child, REX Book Store collaborates with different experts to provide learning solutions that aim not just to educate but also to help solve real world problems. With the company’s identity being “Para sa Bata” and “Para sa Bayan”, the partnership between REX and the Palabrica couple is a marriage of ideals that provides benefits beyond the education sector.
